Former Sweden international Freddie Ljungberg has announced that he will be leaving his role as Arsenal’s assistant coach.

Ljungberg was named interim manager following the sacking of Unai Emery who is now at Villarreal and the Swede also formed part of Mikel Arteta’s backroom staff after he was named the manager.

The 43-year-old was involved in training sessions but was not on the bench during matchday as he observed the team’s performances from the stands to, later on, provide his analysis.

He was reportedly linked with the vacant manager position at Swedish top-flight side AIK but he has not responded to those claims.

Arsenal are yet to make a statement following Ljungberg’s departure.
